The airline said passengers could now fly from Port Harcourt, Asaba, Owerri, Abuja, amongst others. Air Peace wrote:

"Embark on your London adventure from Abuja, Asaba, Benin, Enugu, Owerri, Warri, or Port Harcourt! Seamless connections via Lagos. Make your journey smooth and convenient."

Ifeanyi Aniagoh wants Anambra added

Bothered by the exclusion of Anambra, Ifeanyi asked Air Peace some questions as he sought answers. He wrote on Facebook:

"Dear Air Peace,
"Why's Anambra Airport not included in these lists coming from you communication department?
"Is it due to insignificant travel traffic generated from there;
"Or has the airport closed down and you no longer fly via that route needing your passengers to connect through neighbouring cities;
"Is there something we don't know or something you are not getting right?"

Why I called Air Peace out

When contacted over his call out, Ifeanyi explained to why he actually did it.

"I am one of the top promoters of the Air Peace basically because of my pride in seeing Nigerian rands go global.

"My question points to the fact that Anambra has a functioning airport and still ranks in the top 3 states in Nigeria with the highest number of travelling indigenes. So, it's genuine to sincerely wonder about the omission when I saw the listed airports.
"After my post, I got calls from major stakeholders who explained a few details to me. It's still same routes and these are all connecting flights, you enjoy the normal Air Peace flights from these locations to Lagos from whence you depart to London."

Ifeanyi feels adequate communication would have prevented such a call out.

"So, it's simply a communication gap that would have been indicated in the banner, either by listing all the routes or dropping a line to explain, like "connect from your local airports or fly to London from your closest Airport with Air Peace."
"So, I'm for Air Peace on this journey. My outcry was borne out of love and deep concern, and some clarifications have been offered."
